Lake Carezza, Italy

Photograph by Antonio Chiumenti

This Month in Photo of the Day: National Geographic Photo Contest Images

Lake Carezza is a pearl of the Dolomites. Nestled between an ancient forest of grand firs and Latemar mountain, it's a place of legends and beauty—a nymph lives under its emerald waters. I threw a little stone in the water to add a little mystery to the scene.
